Alderley Edge always has a feeling of the mystical and magical about it, so we were incredibly excited to be invited to Mingle at Alderley’s Alchemist. The Alchemist opened last Autumn, completely transforming the Grill on the Edge into a real destination, and marking the Alchemist’s first real venture into the suburbs instead of the city.
On Wednesday, Moxie stayed local in the early evening sunshine and headed to Bramhall’s own Mercato Italiano. Owner Ged has done the most amazing job at Mercato – with the space, the food and his team. It’s welcoming and yet coolly contemporary – and the retractable roof over the outside area is a stroke of genius!
Moxie were delighted to be invited to hold their latest Mingle at Chilli Banana in Wilmslow. Chilli Banana have been providing an authentic Thai culinary experience to their customers for the past 20 years. The restaurant is run by husband and wife team Steve and May. The story of Chilli Banana’s authentic Thai food began with May learning her mother’s cookery skills on their family farm 6,000 miles away. Their aim is to recreate the delicate Thai flavours of May’s homeland for a new generation of Cheshire families.
Moxie were delighted to be invited to celebrate of our FIFTH birthday at the Eclectic Hotels’ Eleven Didsbury Park. Doesn’t time fly when you’re having fun? Set in a quiet backwater off Parrs Wood Road, in the leafy suburb of Didsbury this exclusive Victorian townhouse is a statement of Eclectic’s trademark design. Many smaller hotels are described as ‘Boutique’, and often disappoint, but Eleven Didsbury Park absolutely epitomises that tenet.
Ourworx is all about office space with a difference, so it’s an ideal venue for Moxie – renowned for networking with a difference. Ourworx provide serviced offices but with a luxurious and modern edge in elegant, stylish surroundings. These prestigious spaces are finished to exacting standards and high-quality specifications. With superior, top of the range furnishings, and a host of services, facilities and benefits, Ourworx is the perfect solution for small business office rental (and handily close to Stockport with easy access to rail and road links) – and the perfect space for a Moxie Mingle.
Moxie were delighted to be invited to Bramhall’s newest bar, the swish and sumptuous Blanc de Blancs on Wednesday evening. More than just a wine bar – but not heading into pub territory, or treading on anyone else in Bramhall’s toes – Blanc de Blancs is gorgeous and owners Emma and Alex clearly have a passion for what they do. They also have a passion for Bramhall and use local businesses as much as possible – even the stunning artwork is from Cheshire Art Gallery, just over the road.
On Thursday 23 February, Moxie Minglers braved Storm Doris and headed out to the imposing and stunningly beautiful Shrigley Hall Hotel, Golf and Country Club. Despite fallen trees, flying debris and severe weather warnings (and even with the added complication of everyone’s children being off school for half-term) we had an absolutely fantastic turn out. Thank you – it was lovelier than ever to see you all!
